Once Oracle Data Service Integrator is set up properly, it is quite simple to snatch data from a myriad of disparate sources and put them into a single repository. Due to cost factors, it is not for the faint of heart; however, if you can handle it, the benefits will quickly outpace the initial investment. To take full advantage of the power of ODSI, I would recommend the training that Oracle provides.

The same way you design data integration job can be used to design services. It is easy to enhance by custom components and can adapt to all requirements. Talend Data Integration connects to [a] multitude of data sources and streaming service. Very easy interface to design complex applications without spending much time on coding. Easy to learn and master. Talend constantly strives to better itself by adding more features and functionalities.
Read full review Pros Very easy to use. Very easy to just grab data when needed. Very robust and has so many features to move and transform data. Functionality is very easy to implement with other Oracle data products. Read full review We used Talend to ETLing the data from myriad sources such Oracle Database, Clarify, Salesforce, Sugar CRM, SQL DB, MQ, Stibo Step, FTP, Netezza, and Files. We leverage Talend transformation capabilities for stitching the data , unions and join We successfully created the final unified set that can be used by business Read full review Cons If not bundled with other products, the price can be prohibitively expensive SAP connectors tend to be a little expensive and slightly difficult to use The audit module had some difficulties debugging failed instances Read full review Pricing for sure can be the area for improvement. Real time processing is slow as compared to other tools like Abinitio. While developing batches, it crashes a lot. It may be the issue with me, but I wanted to highlight it.

We use Talend Data Integration day in and day out. It is the best and easiest tool to jump on to and use. We can build a basic integration super-fast. We could build basic integrations as fast as within the hour. It is also easy to build transformations and use Java to perform some operations.

Good support, specially when it relates to PROD environment. The support team has access to the product development team. Things are internally escalated to development team if there is a bug encountered. This helps the customer to get quick fix or patch designed for problem exceptions. I have also seen support showing their willingness to help develop custom connector for a newly available cloud based big data solution

While we tested and evaluated multiple data service providers, we came to choose Oracle Data Service Integrator since our infrastructure was so heavily dependent on Oracle software. The implementation would be easier and the difference in the number of features and performance wasn't enough to sway us in another direction.

In comparison with the other ETLs I used, Talend is more flexible than Data Services (where you cannot create complex commands). It is similar to Datastage speaking about commands and interfaces. It is more user-friendly than ODI, which has a metadata point of view on its own, while Talend is more classic. It has both on-prem and cloud approaches, while
is only cloud-based.
Read full review Return on Investment It provided terrific bulk data movement and data transformation services which we desperately needed It allowed to reduce development costs and lower the total cost of ownership among disparate architectures The enterprise edition's ELT allowed us to generate native code for wildly varied RDBMS Read full review It’s only been a positive RoI with Talend given we’ve interfaced large datasets between critical on-Prem and cloud-native apps to efficiently run our business operations. 40K+ plots data, covering 1K+ crop varieties. 3K+ Customer & their credit data, 3K+ product inventory & pricing.
